The Shape of Water: You Snooze, You Lose!

Universal Studios had been sitting on “The Creature from the Black Lagoon” for 6 decades.

For dozens of different reasons they were never able to reboot the franchise.  
I suppose that director Guillermo deo Toro was tired of trying to pull blood from a stone. So he set out and did it his own way by designing his own creature (without ever using the word “creature” to describe it, by the way) and, now, the rest is cinematic history.
You snooze, you lose!
 
Congratulations to Fox Searchlight for helping Guillermo get it done!

Congrats to Horror Film Director Guillermo del Toro for 2 Oscar Wins!!

Congrats to Guillermo Del Toro on his well-deserved Best Director and Best Picture Oscars for “The Shape of Water”.

I reviewed the film here a few months ago and loved its magic and beauty.  It is a poetic tribute to a bygone film era.

There couldn’t be a more deserving human being.
Guillermo has always been a humble and sweet guy and he is a horror film icon.
Always helpful to his peers and minions and encouraging his team.

I have a video bumper of him promoting The Horror Channel for us about 10 years ago.
Must dig it out and post.
